Us Rating: **

Step-dancing star Michael Flatley brings his long-running Irish musical to the big screen in this underwhelming 3-D flick. At age 52, Flatley himself is impressive, showing off his well-honed moves and raw talent. But the story told within the dance -- Flatley's lord fights a dark lord -- feels jumpy and confusing, and the Las Vegas–style pyrotechnics grow tiresome. While the 3-D offers a closer look at the troupe's tight footwork, overall the movie will earn Flatley few new fans.
